Is Pink the New Red? Lupita Nyong'o Makes Us Think So

If you haven't heard of Lupita Nyong'o, then you are missing out. She has already become known for her outstanding beauty looks on the red carpet, and InStyle recently talked to her makeup artist to get her exact product recommendations.

Another reason Lupita Nyong’o continues to be our style muse: She’s not afraid to break out an ultra-bright lipstick regardless of the season. The neon pink shade she wore to a GQ party in Los Angeles is officially the high-octane alternative to the classic red lip. Rather than picking up a solid, opaque hue, her makeup artist Nick Barose chose Giorgio Armani’s Lip Maestro in No. 504 ($32), a lipstick-lacquer hybrid with buildable coverage. "A bold lip color like hot fuchsia pink is more wearable when you opt for a texture that isn’t too glossy or matte," he told InStyle.com. "Try something more sheer, like a stain or lip lacquer." Armani’s innovative formula dries to a slightly matte, velvety finish, and stays in place once applied so you won’t have to fuss over finding a matching lip liner — just be sure to clean up around the edges with concealer, or a pointed Q-tip to cover any unexpected smudges.
